In a time of disconnection and violence, one response can be creating art about connection.
The piece is now on display at the Chicago Avenue/Main Street Branch of the Evanston Public Library, 900 Chicago Ave.
This sculpture began at Gather, a community art studio and creativity focused playspace in downtown Evanston, traveled to the Evanston Art Center as part of the Evanston Made Kids programming this summer, and now is on display at CAMS. Everyone is invited from now through the end of September to express what they love or value in the community and add to this collaborative installation.
Also, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 7 at CAMS, Angela Lyonsmith will hold a Family Art Making Workshop to teach the simple process of wrapping used in this piece. It is accessible for makers of all ages.
